How many hours to charge Samsung Galaxy S4?

Hi can you tell me about how many hours it takes to charge a Samsung Galaxy S4?

How many hours your phone takes to charge depends on a lot of different factors. While the normal charging time is two to four hours for a Samsung Galaxy S4, the following factors will have an impact on your charging time:

  • If you're running intensive applications, your phone will take longer to charge since it's using the charger to power the processor and graphics chip to run the app.
  • Temperature also affects your charge times, as well. As your device uses a Lithium-ion battery, you won't be able to charge below freezing. You will also get better charge/discharge performance at higher temperatures, but the overall life of the battery will suffer the higher the temperature.
  • If you charge from a computer USB port instead of your Samsung Galaxy S4's AC charger, your charge times may be longer. This is because computer USB ports are lower-powered than your phone's wall charger.

If your room is at room temperature, you're charging from your wall charger, and your phone isn't running any intensive applications, your phone shouldn't take longer than four hours to charge. If it does, however, you may have a defective charging port, cable, or wall adapter. Contact Samsung to ask about receiving a new cable or charger. If they don't suspect that it's your cable or charger, you may have to set up a repair to get your charging port fixed.

My Samsung Galaxy S4 was not charging properly and then today after I did get it to charge successfully it turned off and it won't power back up. I'm not sure why?

My charging port got dust (I think) in it and I think it caused one of the pins inside the port to break (I think), so it has been very touchy well charging but it has been charging. But today out of nowhere after it charged it would not turn on / power up, what's going possibly?

I put a new battery in my Galaxy S4 because the old one died?

The Verizon store put a new battery in the phone because it was under warranty (9 months old) and the new battery is losing power. It said to attach it to power source so I am charging it. It is draining power even though it is on the charger.

My Samsung Galaxy S4 battery is dead and become fat how can I use it again?

I am charging my mobile yet the battery is dead and become fat

Once your battery becomes fat, it is highly advisable to get a replacement and stop charging it, being in this condition, it becomes more liable to explode if you continue to use it and charge it.
